Yup, thats a HEMMT allright.

I was in a patriot missile unit. It doesnt look like thats whats being towed though. Patriot missile launchers are easy to identify. They have a 15 Kilowat generator mounted towards the truck end of the trailer, and have 4 square canisters with the missiles in them. From what I can see, maybe these are old Hawks?

The chalk on the side, as someone said earlier, is the convoy sderial ID number. We used to have to do them all the time in germany when we needed local road clearance to travel.

Out LRPT, Radar, all 8 launchers, our wrecker, our fuel tank, and missile loader were all HEMMTS. Those suckers never got stuck anywhere, and were a trip to ride in.

Thats not a hmmt it is a pls. They are basically the same body design but the overall funtion is differnet. The pls has a hydraulic lift somewhat like a dump truck mechanism that lifts flat racks full of supplies off the ground and pulls them on its back. The purpose is for the quick insertion of ammuntion and supplies in a hostile enviroment. It can drop a load in just a minute or 2 and pick up a empty in the same. I will try to find a video of it in action real quick......

Well no video but pics and specs. And don't aruge and say its a hmmt cuz its not I know. The hemit is different. I took a 80 hour maintinance class on the pls just 1 year ago. I am very well informed on it. That company also makes the HET. ANother bad a$$ piece of equipment. Check it out!

Letters and numbers on the door is the convoy's clearance number. The military must coordinate with local and state transportation authorities, stating route, date of travel, number of vehicles, etc, whenever using the public highway. Also when oversized or hazardous material is being transported (yes, a rocket launcher is/can be pretty hazardous).
